The only way to achieve serious(of order $T/yr) cuts in spending is to not raise the debt ceiling. Shredded credit rating? No kldding. What smoke and mirrors is keeping it from being otherwise?

Where are the government spending credits on? Creating overseas jobs that help expanding corporation monopoly elsewhere OR paying for domestic public services that we haven’t paid for? Why don’t our domestic public services already have credits already? Why should overseas wars for oil have endless credits when homelessness and joblessness are everywhere in our communities?

What about the magical $1 trillion coin the Fed is “legally” authorized to mint that will take away all those money issues and turn this once great nation into Zimbabwe?

Instead of urinating money away on 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition for DHS for “domestic use” why isn’t the government spending that money on their outstanding loan payments?

How are they running out of money when my taxes went up this year even though the government swears up and down my taxes didn’t go up?

Somebody is lying.
